High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in phpList, which can be exploited to perform Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and SQL Injection attacks against the vulnerable application.
Input passed via the "unconfirmed" GET parameter to /admin/index.php (when "page" is set to "user") is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user.
This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in administrator's browser session in context of affected website.
The following PoC (Proof of Concept) demonstrates the vulnerability:
Input passed via the "delete" GET parameter to /admin/index.php (when "page" is set to "editattributes") is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL query.
This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code. However successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires administrator's privileges.
